Marine Audio! The Top 5 New Products At SonicElectronix.com!

Like always, the team at Sonic Electronix is dedicated to bringing y’all the latest products and information on everything audio related — including marine audio! And with summer right around the corner, we want to make sure you guys are equipped with the latest and best marine audio equipment for your boat! So, without further adieu — the top 5 new marine products from SonicElectronix.com!

Every boat needs a great head unit. The headunit that we were really impressed with is Infinity’s PRV250. This marine digital stereo features a marine-rated watertight interface with white-illuminated controls that will stand up to sun, salt, and moisture that marine vehicles are constantly exposed to. In addition, it features an AM/FM radio, built-in Bluetooth technology for audio streaming, along with USB and 3.5mm AUX inputs to connect all of your audio devices. And when it comes to expanding your sound system, the PRV250 also features two sets of 2V preamp outputs for the connection of power speakers, an amplifier, or even a subwoofer!

Speakers on your boat are critical for that high quality sound y’all are looking for! The new Kicker 8″ KM84LCW and 6.5″ KM654LCW light up speakers are some amazing speakers that we highly recommend. These 2-way marine speakers are water resistant with a sealed motor structure, locking terminal covers, and UV treated woofer cones. In addition, they can put out 130 watts of RMS power per pair and come with a 1″ titanium dome tweeter for higher frequencies. However, their most impressive feature are the multi-color LED lights which light up right behind the protective grills and are adjustable by remote.

                  

Kicker also released the KM Series subwoofers to really give you the high quality sound you desire this summer.  These 10″ marine subwoofers feature the same great LED technology as the KM Series speakers! They also feature an injection molded cone, tough Santoprene surround, and come in a Single 2-Ohm model and Single 4-Ohm model with a rated RMS power of 150 watts. Along with the subwoofer, you also get a matching basket with a protective, bolt-through grille which includes a smart, integrated moisture-draining system, making them perfect for marine weather conditions! In addition, this subwoofer’s UV treated, weather-proof qualities exceed industry standards.

                                    

When it comes to tower speakers for your marine vehicle, the MT81LKB (Black) and MT81LKW (White) are high quality tower speakers that Sonic Electronix highly suggests checking out! These fully water resistant, single-ended tubbies are 2-way marine speakers which feature 150 watts of RMS power, new lighted LED light clusters for lighting up your entire boat, and a new slim line aerodynamic design . They feature platinum 5-way binding posts, waterproof mid ranges and tweeters and an automotive-grade paint finish. These tower speakers are perfect for any summer activity out on the water being that they are also salt, fog, and UV certified!

MTX’s Wet Series Marine Amplifiers are some amazing amplifiers to really power the sound system on your boat! They were compactly designed in a small chassis, making them easily installed on any marine vehicle. In addition, they feature stainless steel harware, surface mount technology, plastic splash guard over control-adjustments, and a conformal coated circuit board – which makes these amps ideal for powering your sound system while protecting it at the same time! The WET series amplifiers come in a 500 Watt RMS Monoblock model, a 400 Watt RMS 4-Channel model, and a 200 Watt RMS 2-Channel model.

And that concludes Sonic Electronix’ list for our top new marine audio products! Be sure to check out all the great audio equipment we have for your boat this season at SonicElectronix.com! Until next time, we’ll see y’all later!

And we are excited to let you in on our favorite products from the show!

At the show, one of our favorite headphone companies, Audio Technica, showed off their four brand new models of M-Series professional monitor headphones to add to their product line. They are all set to be released this February. The top of the line model is the ATH-M50x and has the added feature of detachable cables. The contoured earcups seal tight for excellent sound isolation and the pro-grade materials are durable, yet comfortable.

 

The other three models are the ATH-M40x, ATH-M30x, and the ATH-M20x. The ATHM40x also features the detachable cables and are tuned flat for incredibly accurate audio monitoring across an extended frequency range. The ATH-M30x and ATH-M20x headphones are tuned for highly detailed audio, with strong mid-range definition, and are highly versatile monitoring headphones which are ideal for studio tracking and mixing.
